We need a bit of a Buzz... Can you help?



We are enquiring if any of our supporters are a whizz with a drone? We are hoping to film the herons in the tree-tops if they will rest-easy with a drone flying around. Hence, before they start nesting, I would like someone experienced with a drone to come and fly one around the reserve and see how the ‘residents’ react to it.


Previously the BBC have expressed an interest in filming them, but through use of a tower erected within the Reserve. Now, with technology more advanced, it may be that a drone could capture some of those early pictures of the herons as they grow up. It may not work or be viable, but if you don’t ask/try it you may never know.


Please get in touch if you can help.


Many thanks, Nigel
